Lisa Marie shows she cares


Lisa Marie is very involved with children and literacy. In October of 1997, Lisa Marie, along with friend and fellow Memphian Isaac Hayes, opened the Literacy, Education and Ability Program (LEAP). LEAP is a free program for children and people of all ages in Memphis, Tennessee.

LEAP provides effective educational services and materials that help people learn how to learn and study effectively and thereby have the ability to achieve their goals and realize their full potential. LEAP provides effective learning tools, known as Hubbard Study Technology.

Study Technology is based on break-through research by author/educator L. Ron Hubbard, which enables the student to isolate and repair his areas of learning difficulty such that he can effectively learn and apply what he learns. Application of these study techniques gives the student the ability to improve his own education and re-instills in him/her a love for learning.

In addition, LEAP (Literacy, Education and Ability Program) increases the literacy rate of its students by resolving earlier literacy problems and putting in the basics to an easy understanding of the English language, including phonics and grammar.

LEAP began as grass roots program helpings hundreds of students in Memphis achieve a better education. In 2002, LEAP became authorized by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission as a post-secondary school to train teachers and tutors in Study Technology. LEAP became a full Applied Scholastics® non-profit school, offering an after-school tutoring program for youth.

All courses use a step-by-step, self paced approach to learning that combines theory with practical exercises. The objectives of The Literacy, Education and Ability Program (LEAP) are to increase the learning potential of all students in the community as well as the effectiveness of our school's teachers in order to ensure the success of our future generations.

LEAP is seeking donations to expand its services to the youth in Memphis and the mid-South. LEAP is a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 and all donations are tax-deductible.
